Obi’s Supporters Trolled Rajvanshi’s Twitter Account With Hate Comments– Fani-Kayode

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Fani-Kayode says Times Magazine’s Journalist, Astha Rajvanshi locked her Twitter account over hate comments by supporters of Peter Obi.

He wrote in a tweet, “Simply for listing Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as being amongst the top 100 most powerful people in the world, TIME magazine’s Astha has had to lock her Twitter account because of the hate speech and trolling that the followers of Peter Obi have subjected to her.”

Recall that Time’s Magazine had earlier listed President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu among its 100 Most Influential People in the World.

Rajvanshi comes under fire for naming Tinubu among the 2023 most influential people

Time reporter, Astha Rajvanshi has been heavily criticised for writing the citation of Bola Tinubu, the president-elect of Nigeria, in the 2023 issue of the magazine’s 100 most influential people. The criticisms were sponsored by several Nigerians, particularly supporters of Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), known as Obidients.

While some accused Rajvanshi of laundering the image of Tinubu, others called her “the promoter of a man that rendered families hopeless due to heroin trafficking”.

In the report, she described the President-elect as a “longtime political power broker”, who spent almost two decades preparing for the presidential election. She also noted that the former governor of Lagos is “aware of his inheritance” in the form of a “litany of crises in a fractured nation, including deep-rooted corruption, religious insurgencies, and shortages of cash, fuel, and power in a crumbling economy”.

Supporters of Obi and Tinubu have been at loggerheads since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Bola Tinubu, candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the presidential election on the 1st of March, 2023.
